3rd fugitive sibling sentenced in Colorado


The last of three siblings accused in a multistate crime spree has been sentenced in connection with their capture in Colorado.

Ryan Dougherty was sentenced to 18 years Monday in Walsenburg. He had faced up to 20 years in prison after pleading guilty to five counts of menacing.

He, his sister and a brother are accused of shooting at a police officer and staging a daring bank robbery before being captured in Colorado after a shootout.

They are expected to be transferred from state to federal custody within days, if not hours.

The U.S. Marshals Service will transport them to Albany, Ga., for a court hearing on May 15.
